Killer Be Killed – Killer Be Killed

kbkWhen you hear that Max Cavalera is involved in a project you think you know what to expect, right?

Not anymore – Killer Be Killed also features Mastodon’s Troy Sanders, Dillinger Escape Plan’s Greg Puciato and Dave Elitch, formerly of The Mars Volta. the result is a contender for the metal album of the year.

With a progressive rhythm section, three vocalists and songwriting shared across the board this truly a different beast than anything Cavalera has previously touched.

At times you hear Sabbath, then it’s Fear Factory, a touch of Neurosis and even early Killswitch Engage. One thing you don’t hear is the same idea repeated.

Standout tracks for me are ‘Wings of Feather and Wax’, ‘Snakes of Jehovah’ and ‘I.E.D’, but there isn’t a weak moment to be heard. Do yourself a favour – buy it, it’s out now.
